Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction
Rolling Pines Golf Course, Berwick, PA
purpose of this charitable golf tournament and Silent Auction
is to benefit the Coach John S. Devlin Jr. Bloomsburg Football
Scholarship Fund. Bloomsburg was his final stop during almost
40 years of coaching on every level from high school to the
Devlin loved Jesus, his family, his players, and fellow coaches.
He often said that the greatest coaching accomplishment was
helping a hard-working player—a player who was not the fastest,
biggest, quickest or the most talented player on the field to
play great and overcome overwhelming odds. He cherished the
occasions when he could convince players who everybody thinks
“can’t play” to play beyond everyone's expectations. At Bloomsburg
University, he returned to his roots—a place where perhaps he
exceeded his own best as a coach.
endowed fund will grow each year with the proceeds that are
generated from the event. All donations are tax-deductible and
all proceeds will go to the Coach Devlin Scholarship Fund, which
will benefit players each year who best fit Coach Devlin’s mold—players
who may not be the best athlete on the field—but players who
work hard, players who are tough, and, above all, players who
you can golf or simply want to be part of the festivities, this
will be a truly special event for Bloomsburg University. Of
course, if you can’t attend on May 17, 2014, you can contribute
to the Devlin Scholarship Fund individually and/or as a sponsor.
We appreciate any help you can give.
